Default Re: terms and conditions for plant hire

If I'm doing a private and hit a service I always say I'm the boyfriend or the gardener. They never ask for your insurance details and they never seem to make a fuss as they think there's no insurance cover to claim on and a personal action is too much grief. Let's just say I've been successful a couple of times! Mums the word though!

you get an electrician in to say fit a light, he drills through the water pipe and floods your house. would you be like its ok mate my fault no worries or would you be like you're the one who drilled its on you/ your insurance. ?

as much as you tell some one etc end of the day if you're at the controls or your lads are at the controls in a court of law you're gonna be liable because its your action. hence why if its un known you go slow and steady if you think there is a chance of a service being in the ground etc

I can see where your coming from but if you tell the electrician to drill a hole in a certain spot then hits the water pipe surly its your fault as he is working under instruction

If the electrician does his best to locate any pipes what more can he do ? It can't be his problem if you can't tell him where the pipe is either, It has to be at owners risk.

Not sure of relationship between different utilities but out on the highway there seems to be more detail and plans available. I know of two men that excavate for utility repairs and they dig as if utilities are always present. That's their job. Ask Graham he's one of them.

I've never found what I needed online, so I just get my local printer to make them up for me. Normally get 5 at a time so it reduces the cost compared to buying just 1.
